Around late July, I found this thread on here: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/146143-metallic-gold-dip-pen-ink/

 

Being a crafty type person I had to try it, and thus started my dive into dip pens, and mixing ink for them. Specifically from the PearlEx Powdered Pigments.

 

This is my current set of colors, along with my sample writing of them:

I got so into making colors out of the powders, it was ridiculous. And then I started getting into customizing my dip pen holder, until I figured out and found the pieces to be able to make my own holder that holds feathers. So now I also own a small collection of feathers (with a plan for it to get bigger) and a wonderful dip pen holder. As well as a few extra because, what the heck I have so much fun with this, why don't I try and make some to sell on my Etsy. (Still working on that last part.)

My first Feather and Holder of this kind. Got new Feathers....

 

And then got the new holders and started making combinations and ones to sell:

And then finally today I figured out that the same trick I use to make the powdered pigment inks, I can actually use with my fountain pen inks. So now I've got a white-shimmer lavender and a gold-shimmer green:

And through all of this I've been constantly referencing these boards and checking out things about dip pens, how to care for them, how to deal with them, and I just wanted to finally share all that I'd managed with them. :)

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
